    Thanks Ellen and Carolyn. I'm thinking of making a copy of the photo for the bird dealer. He saw it already and liked it.
    All six of the flock are 6 years old already! Tubbie and Sweetie are looking forward to their 7th birthday. Pretty good for sparrows!

    I am smiling too, what a precious picture of two very cute birds. I agree with Ellen, keep the pictures coming. Seeing all the great bird pictures that are on here gives me the bird fix that I need and crave daily

    Yes, Deanna, I totally agree! I need my "bird fix" each day too!! It is going to be so much fun seeing how fast little Gabby grows. A little "bird" told me that Gabby and Kahnee will be the best of friends and inseparable!! And they sure do have a special "mom" for a parront!!

    Re: I got my baby today!

    Thanks Deanna and Ellen! Here's the latest picture of Gabby. He sure is changing fast. He's gained 20 grams in 4 days! And he's growing into his feet, that is, they look a little more proportionate to his body.



    He's hooked on watching tv. After he eats he cries to be held and keeps crying until I sit in front of the tv and turn it on. Then his gaze is riveted on the tv. I paused a show tonight to talk with my granddaughter, and Gabby immediately squawked until I turned his show back on.

    Pat, Gabby has changed quite a bit since the first photo. I think Gabby is going to be one spoiled bird. Any plans on a fid photo with Gabby, Henry, Khanee and Misty?

    Re: I got my baby today!

    I don't think they'll all sit for a single photo together. Henry is too little and Kahnee is definitely not fond of him. Besides, Henry is busy with his new baby Riley, lol. But I have photos of them that are recent.

    Here's Misty and the Easter Piggie:


    And here's Henry and Riley from when Riley barely feathered out:



    Riley turned out to be really pretty with some pied markings and turquoise face.

    More later...

    Keep the pics coming Pat. I'm hoping my new arrival which is a tiel, should be home in about a month. Can't wait to start uploading. Your babies are real beauties!! I just love how inquisitive Misty looks with the Easter piggy.

    Re: I got my baby today!

    You have some gorgeous little birds Pat, thanks for posting the pictures. I think Gabby is going to be such a lover bird because it already sounds like she is spoiled rotten which to me is the best kind of bird you can have.

    Re: I got my baby today!

    Baby Gabby (Gabriel or Gabriella, depending on gender) is gaining weight rapidly. He's 90 grams today, from 68 grams 4 days ago. He recognizes my voice and will walk to me when I put him in his little feeding box. I placed a 'diaper' in his brooder this morning and called him over to it. After a few moments, he came over to it, LOL. He's a smart little tyke, very curious about everything. He already knows Kahnee and Misty. Pretty soon I'll introduce him to the parrotlets. P.S. I'm not worrying about quarantine. I know lots of people will get on my case about that, but I keep my birds clean and I trust the dealer. Gabby's the last bird I'm getting. Seven's enough!!

    I would love seeing Gabby walking, I bet that is just soooo cute! I have only saw a baby bird one time in a bird shop and it wasnt up close and it wasnt walking at all.

    Re: I got my baby today!

    Gabby is walking already?? It's growing into those large feet pretty quick..

    I knew about Henry, but I didn't know about Riley. I think Henry is going to like his new friend. I am so excited for you Pat!! You get to watch all seven babies grow!!

    Re: I got my baby today!

    @Deanna: he's really funny to watch when he walks. But he's quick so I have to keep a close eye on him when I feed him. Gotta lightly restrain him in his little feeding box or he might just climb out.

    @Carolyn: after I had Henry for a few weeks, the dealer said he was willing to swap Henry for a younger one that needed hand feeding since I like to raise them that young. It broke my heart that he would ask me to give up my little baby Henry. And wouldn't you just know it - I got one of the new babies. Glad I did. He and Henry are fabulous together! And they still come to me. Henry's letting me hold him in my hand. He hadn't done that at first because he was so scared of the new home.

    Gabby is growing into his feet! Such a sweetheart. My tiel is the same way about certain things on the screens, he likes anything that moves around and looks like a bug or bird and will chase the mouse pointer or moving characters on my computer monitor and hates when it is turned off when he's busy playing Don't know how you handle seven birds! I have enough time keeping up with one, two is going to be my limit.

    He was sure young when you first brought him home. Yes, the feet look huge at that time. In second picture 4 days later, he is already looking better. You will get to see him daily bloom into a beautiful bird.

    Re: I got my baby today!

    Hi, Pat!! Awwwww!!! What sweet pics you take! Gabby is simply "gorgeous"!! And I LOVE the pics of Misty, Henry and Riley too!! You are an AWESOME photographer, and birdy parront!! Gabby is growing by leaps and bounds! Your talent for caring for them sure does shine through the pics!! They look like they all are so content and happy!!

    Several years ago I had 13 birds in my home. 4 tiels and 9 budgies!! I loved every minute of caring and interacting with them. 4 of the budgies were babies that hatched from a pair that I bred. The only time I ever bred birds, and those little babies were the cutest and sweetest budgies!! If I had the opportunity, I'd have an aviary full of all kinds of birds. I just simply LOVE them!!

    Thanks for sharing your journey with Gabby, Misty, Riley, Henry, Kahnee, and all of your flock!
